Fulham’s form has been up and down recently, so fans may be forgiven for feeling a little disenchanted with their season so far.
A feature of their indifferent form has been their failure to convert from set-pieces – though after some heroics from Tim Ream on international duty for the United States, some fans were calling for the centre-back to take over corner-taking responsibilities for the Whites.
According to WhoScored, Fulham have only converted three times in the Championship from set-piece situations – with just three sides scoring fewer.
But after Ream delivered a free-kick that was headed home by defensive partner Aaron Long, some fans congratulated the USA defender for his assist that helped his country to a comfortable victory over Canada in the CONCACAF Nations League.
Meanwhile, others felt that he could be of use at corners to help improve Fulham’s conversion rate at set-plays.
Here is how some Fulham fans reacted to Ream’s perfect delivery:
At last someone who beats the first man!
